Sky Kids has taken further steps to establish itself as the premier destination for Kids entertainment by announcing a new deal with Beano Studios to produce a brand-new TV show ‘SO Beano!’ inspired by the rebellious and anarchic ethos of Beano.com, the multi award-winning digital kids platform.
Filmed at Sky’s state of the art facilities – and to be available for customers on Sky, the SKY KIDS app and NOW TV kids platform – the new presenter-led entertainment show is inspired by the hottest trends and most loved content on Beano.com – from mad dance crazes and LOL-tastic comedy sketches to guest challenges and fresh new cartoons.
26x15min episodes, aimed at 8-11-year olds, showcase brilliant, young, diverse UK creatives both in front of and behind the camera. The show includes eight unique sketch acts and fresh talent in the form of presenters, animators, comedy writers and performers.The sketches include gems from Bec Hill, The Birthday Girls, Astonishing Tales, Invisible Girlfriend, Reverse Parents Evening and Wheelers Dealers.
Ever wanted to know what it’s like to Vlog in space, be an audacious popstar, go on a witch hunt or maybe just listen to an astonishing tale about the never ending lunchbox, then tune into So Beano on Sky Kids.
The show is hosted by rising YouTuber Joe Tasker, comedy actress Nimisha Odedra, online fan favourite Emma Shaw and Joseph Robinson who makes his debut TV appearance .
SO Beano! marks the continued evolution of Beano Studios from a much-loved comic to a highly innovative, multi-platform entertainment producer and digital network, engaging kids across all screens with long and short form content.
26 comedy sketches were produced for each episode of the series. The sketches were sound designed and mixed in 5.1 surround sound by Rich Evans at Syncbox.
